Finally, China congratulates newly elected US President Joe Biden. China has also congratulated newly elected US Vice President Kamala Harris.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin greeted the crowd at a regular press briefing on Friday, local time, according to AFP. The congratulations were officially announced by China about a week after the announcement of the results of the US presidential election.
The last few years under the Trump administration have seen a sharp deterioration in US-China relations, AFP says. Relations between the two countries have never deteriorated so much before.
Congratulating Biden at the press briefing, Wang Wenbin said, “We respect the choice of Americans. Mr. Congratulations to Biden and Orange Harris. “
Wang Wenbin said China understands that the outcome of the US election will be determined by US laws and procedures.
Among the important countries that have not congratulated Biden for so long are China, Russia and Mexico. It remains to be seen what message will come from Russia and Mexico after China’s congratulations. Earlier, China said it had noticed Biden’s victory.
In the four years of the Trump administration, the Sino-US trade war reached its peak, AFP reported. Even Beijing-Washington blamed each other for the Kovid-19 epidemic.
